After playing the clip of Trump, Ali Velshi asked his co-host, “why is he thinking about Ali?”
But Ruhle was speechless as she shook her head side-to-side, with a look of bewilderment on her face.
“Yeah, OK,” Velshi said to break the silence.
Finally, Ruhle found her voice, as the pair finished each other’s sentences while explaining to their viewers that the United States Supreme Court had unanimously overturned Ali’s conviction. In 1971.
Maryland man paralyzed from the waist down after traffic stop ends with him being slammed to the ground
A Prince George's County man is now paralyzed from the waist down after an altercation with police, Fox5DC reported this weekend.
According to the police, when they pulled over 24-year-old Demonte Ward-Blake for an "expired tag" Ward-Blake was argumentative and police said they smelled marijuana in the car. Medical marijuana is legal in Maryland and possession of 10 grams or less of marijuana was decriminalized in Maryland in 2014. Ward-Blake was found to have 3 grams of pot on him. Police still use the "smell of marijuana" as a justification for an illegal search, despite 33 states legalizing pot in some way in the U.S., and it's become known as "sniff and search."
Ex-GOP rep. says Republican buddies will flip on Trump: ‘They do believe he’s a moron’
Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh predicted this week that lawmakers from his own party will eventually support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
"I think he knows it’s coming," Walsh told CNN's Brianna Keilar following the president's remarks to reporters. "He sounded like a frightened baby right there."
According to Walsh, "even Republicans" are embarrassed by Trump's failed effort to hold the G7 summit at his Miami Doral resort.
"It’s really important to note, I need to say this, Republicans don’t like him," Walsh explained. "Republicans in Congress. They don’t like him, they don’t fear him, they don’t respect him. They do believe he’s incompetent, they do believe he’s a moron."
Judge will allow prosecutors to present transcript of ‘Godfather II’ scene at Roger Stone’s trial
Back in July, prosecutors in the upcoming trial of former presidential advisor Roger Stone filed a motion seeking to show a 4-minute clip from the mob movie The Godfather II. Their intention was to help jurors understand a text Stone sent to radio host Randy Credico prior to Credico’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee. As Law & Crime reports, the government contends the scene would provide “important context for understanding Stone’s references—including what Stone intended to communicate to the witness and how Stone would have understood the witness’s likely understanding of those messages.”
